Lettuce Grow understands there is an urgent need for action, to re-think our food system and to protect the environment, and sees the long-term solution in giving consumers the tools to lead the transition to a sustainable food system. To work towards this goal, founders and co-parents Jacob Pechenik and Zooey Deschanel introduced the Farmstand - a self-watering, self-fertilizing system that allows everyone to grow 20% of their own fresh food with no pesticides and 95% less water than traditional agriculture.
“Our youth plays a critical role in helping reshape our future. They are a true force for change. Our aim is to educate, empower, and activate the next generation and provide them access to fresh foods,” said Jacob Pechenik, CEO & Founder of Lettuce Grow. “Whole Kids Foundation is a true catalyst for change, and we are thrilled to continue working with them to support schools and inspire families to improve children’s nutrition and wellness. Through the power of collaboration, we can change mindsets and revolutionize the food system. The partnership between Lettuce Grow and Whole Kids Foundation strengthens our mission to create true impact, to reconnect students to healthier food, and to lead the transition to a more sustainable environment and future.”
